Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) today issued the following statement in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine:
“I ask everyone to join me in praying for the people of Ukraine. I also condemn Vladimir Putin’s malicious and vicious unjust war against Ukraine. President Putin must be punished for these egregious actions. The United States can support Ukraine by sanctioning Russian industry and increasing our energy production here at home.
“President Biden needs to reverse his energy extraction-killing policies so that we can export more natural gas and oil to Europe. This will ensure that Germany and all of Europe will have sufficient fuel supplies. If our allies have adequate energy supplies, they can help us enforce sanctions against Russia for as long as is necessary to break the Russian economy.”
